Product Description

Review

"Lacan's style is - notoriously - as complicated as his ideas. But Fink's translation helps to make 'the mirror stage', 'transference' and 'psychical causality' understandable, if not readily approachable. It is worth the effort: both yours and that put in by the translator and publisher." Margaret Reynolds, The Times"

About the Author

The psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901-1981) was one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. His many published works include Ecrits and The Seminars. Bruce Fink, today's premier translator of Lacan, is winner of a Translation Prize from the French-American Foundation for his translation of Lacan's Ecrits. He is a professor of psychology at Duquesne University and lives in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania.

Format: Paperback
Its only about a year since I started reading Lacan, and at first was quite overwhelmed with the elusiveness of his prose (and seminars). But it pays to be patient with him, and Bruce Fink's translation of the Écrits are a definite help! Though not always the exact word-by-word rendition of the French, his style gives Lacan's prose a flow, which is usually so difficult to sustain in translation (and especially of Lacan!) Makes it a pleasure to read, especially given Lacan's wit now also takes a finkish dimension! But for you purists (and everyone else too), don't miss out on the translator's end-notes, which help a lot with Lacan's oh so elusive allusions, and also comment on the multiple meanings the polyvalent text of Lacan can take.

And of course, this is the only complete translation of the Écrits available for English speakers!

As the title says, this is the first complete edition of Lacan's seminars translated in English. The translation was made by Bruce Fink, a Lacanian psychoanalyst and professor at the Duquesne University. Lacan is perhaps notorious for being difficult to understand and this book is not for beginners. It would be nice if the reader already has a prior knowledge of basic Lacanian concepts, such as the mirror stage, the RSI knot as well as how the unconscious is structured like a language.

I highly recommend this book to readers who want to have an in-depth knowldege on various topics discussed by Lacan.

This has been really useful for my dissertation for my BA (hons) in Photojournalism, and I hope that it will prove useful throughout the rest of my Degree.
